What are you struggling with in your life?
Most people struggle with something.
Today, I have a request. I need you to struggle for me? It’s a weird request I know, so let me explain.
There’s a Bible verse tucked away in Colossians 4. The verse I’m referring to is verse 12. I love it.
Here’s what it says…
Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ Jesus, greets you, always struggling on your behalf in his prayers, that you may stand mature and fully assured in all the will of God.
Many are not familiar with this man. Epaphras was a great man for Jesus!
He labored for the cause of Christ. He loved the brethren.
It’s worth you getting to know him. He’s listed with a number of other men and women in Colossians 4. They were all workers.
Epaphras loved the brethren so much that he struggled for them in prayer. The saints were in a spiritual battle. In chapter two, we find words like “deceive” and “captive.” Epaphras prayed earnestly for the saints!
He wrestled, labored, struggled in prayer. This wasn’t a quick passing thought of the disciples. There was intensity. There was zeal. His desire was for them to stand.
I need you to struggle for ME! I need your help. You need my help too!
So let’s do this. Let’s struggle for one another today, tomorrow, and everyday moving forward. Deal?
STRUGGLE for ME please!
